Get Social with EWGAYou’ve heard about it. Michelle Wie, Paula Creamer, the LPGA,LPGA*USGA Girls Golf, and the Kardashian’s all post to it. And now, so does EWGA.  What is it? Instagram

What is Instagram? Instagram is an online photo and video-sharing  social networking service.  It allows end users to take pictures and videos, and share them either publicly or privately. It also links to other social networking platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Flickr.

How do you get started? First, download the app either from the App Store or Google Play store. It’s free. Even though you can view posts using your PC/Mac, the majority of your activity will take place within the mobile app.

Next choose a username. We are using EWGAGOLF (stop what you are doing right now and look us up and “Follow” EWGAGOLF ).

Complete the profile with your most descriptive 150 characters. It’s slightly longer than a tweet, so make it count!Instagram

Upload a profile picture that is 160x160 pixels. This is one of the few times you can use your computer to upload your photo. Simply click on the profile picture and you will be given the option to upload.

Now comes the fun part, uploading your first post. And that, my dear friends, happens next week. In the meantime, you can check out EWGA’s current posts on Instagram! See you next Tuesday!
